My server went down and hosting company issued me a new VPS, I had MariaDB version 10.7 on my server.

I have a full Cpanel account backup, but where can I find MariaDB SQL database file of my wordpress website?

I searched for /home/username/mysql but nothing found, after finding it how can I restore the database by copying files?

In a cPanel backup, they will be in the mysql folder. MySQL database data is not stored within the site, it's in a system level folder. You can't copy it directly from there (typically) you need the dump/backup.
